XML



I used to be a bit cautious when dealing with XML in the past, but since I have started using FME with it, it just broke down all the barriers.

I actually find it to be a very exiting data type to work with, it is simple to understand and with FME (what else) it is simple to update, create and completely transform.

There is a all bunch of FME transformers for dealing with XML in the transformer gallery.
















I have to admit that I only use a couple of them on a regular basis (XMLTemplater, XMLFormatter and the XMLValidatior) which ,as the names suggest, help me to create, validate and make then human readable.

I guess that Don's love and enthusiasm for XML has affected me too!
